Katy Perry who said all the music awards she won are fake to host the VMAs (she won 5 VMA awards fyi)

Talk about awkward. About a month before the announcement that she will be hosting MTV’s VMAs awards, she kinda put music award shows on blast in a interview with the New York Times…

In our interview, she proclaimed herself devoted to dialogue but spoke in a near uninterrupted monologue. She griped frequently about the internet (the “Wild Wild West,” a quip she repeated on the live stream nearly every time I tuned in), but she boasts the highest number of Twitter followers of any user and just allowed her digital audience to watch her eat, sleep and spread her new gospel on a 96-hour infomercial. She returned to words and phrases: good things are “beautiful”; a desirable mate is “a man of quality and equality” (and for the record, she said Orlando Bloom was one, and Mr. Mayer and even Mr. Brand “are beautiful in their own right”). And she revisited a pet subject: things that are “not real.”

“All the awards shows are fake,” she said, “and all the awards that I’ve won are fake,” she added, explaining that they don’t represent the audience. “They’re constructs.”

The old Katy Perry wasn’t a construct, she explained, and she isn’t dead. “I didn’t kill her, because I love her, and she is exactly what I had to do then,” she said. “And I’m not a con artist, I didn’t con people, like, that was just me. And this is me now.”


She has won several awards from MTV both domestically (5 moonmen) and internationally too https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_awards_and_nominations_received_by_Katy_Perry#MTV_Awards

Doesn’t mean she wasn’t right about award shows. It’s largely a way for an industry to pat itself on the back.
